A MUST SEE 30 SECOND VIDEO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OH YEA.........CHECK OUT THE TANKER BELOW IT..........("tanker".....NO..not Dave)....................

NTSB Identification: SEA07TA181
14 CFR Part 91: General Aviation
Accident occurred Monday, June 25, 2007 in Tehachapi, CA
Aircraft: McDonnell Douglas DC 10-10, registration: N450AX
Injuries: 3 Uninjured.

This is preliminary information, subject to change, and may contain errors. Any errors in this report will be corrected when the final report has been completed.

On June 25, 2007, about 1720 Pacific daylight time, a McDonnell Douglas DC 10-10, N450AX (Tanker 910), impacted trees with the left wing during a fire suppression flight in support of the White Fire about 12 miles southwest of Tehachapi, California. The California Department of Forestry and Fire Prevention (Cal Fire) was operating the airplane as a public use flight under the provisions of 14 CFR Part 91. The captain, first officer, and flight engineer, were not injured. The airplane sustained substantial damage. Visual meteorological conditions prevailed and flight tracking procedures were in effect. The airplane departed Southern California Logistics Airport, Victorville, California, at 1657.

According to Cal Fire personnel, the flight crew was on their third flight of the day and preparing to jettison a load of retardant. While in a left turn from base to final for the drop, the left wing dropped downward and impacted several trees. The captain recovered the airplane and climbed to 11,000 feet mean sea level (msl) for a controllability check. The crew declared an emergency and returned to the departure airport at 1748, where they landed uneventfully.

Cursory examination of the airplane revealed damage to the left wing leading edge, and to control surfaces which included the outboard aileron.

Just don't try landing the BEAST in a cross-wind... or a bit on the heavy side. Any landing less than a "greaser" and that "pannier" would be ripped right off!

Still a "smart" aeroplane!

More HERE...

See the "Calliforny" State Bear on the right engine cowl?

Hey Foggy....Crosswinds.....!!!

Thank you for the link...........!!!!I posted a pic off your link.......I gotta look for that State Bear.....on the cowl

That's one hell of a DC-10, but am I reading it correctly that there's no water/retardant in the fuselage itself? (Cabin f.e.) Hmmmm... btw, 38 cm of clearance...OMG!

Good looking aircraft though, hehehehe :)

Hi guys,

A couple of things, firstly, thanks for the info GJ, secondly, thanks for the Wiki link Foggy - Having read the Wiki page did you see that this thing actually HIT TREES during a base turn and survived to tell the tale! amazing!

Oh, the wings breaking off - it was a C-130, we call 'em Hercules here in the UK..

And one more thing, as usual, I am one post behind (I check your blog on the htc but can't watch the vids) that landing at Tincontin - OMG, it looked pretty normal for that airport then he just floated it, holy sh*t I can't believe he made it without an overrun!

Anyhow, enough for now, I'm right pee'd off - flying from EGll to LTBA in a 767 tonight, allowed it to overspeed in descent and crashed - been drinking, my fault mostly and that after over 3 hrs in the air!!!!

Oh well, back to LHR!

All the best!

D from the UK! :)

Hi Jules,

It flew for Pan Am, AA, Hawaiian Airlines and Omni Air International! (Says WikiPed)

I've even seen the yt vid on TV here lol, we all rofl'd when we saw it xD.

@ DAVE

**NTSB CRASH REPORT***

CAUSE: DRINKING PILOT - The Cockpit Voice Recorder picked up the sound of someone sipping a bottle and quotes such as 'Hey get me another bottle will ya!' -

WHY DID HE NOT GO AROUND?

Dave W said...

Gotta love you all......NOT! LOL!

That vid of the drinker - hilarious, hey GJ, what is it they say about people in glass houses?? :) (by the way, htc is my phone - the vids cost lots of data)

Bas, you are getting far too witty in your old age! :)

*NEWS FLASH* Initial findings reveal weather program at fault, caused overspeed (pilot unable to rectify in time due to being in galley with his good friend Jacobs (Creek)) Mid air break up.......:(

Still pee'd off about it this morning!! At this rate they'll never let me take over when both pilots have had the fish!!

All the best

D from the UK

Bas said...

Hahahaha, still I'd love to see you in a 767 full motion simulator in an emergency where 'the pilots got incapacitated'. I'll be your FO...lol.

Giulia said...

Hilarious! LOL!!!

Methinks Jules has found a replacement for her verbal attacks (all in good fun, of course!)

Lucky you, Dave! It's her sign of affection!

Soooo funny, guys!!!
